What a Day! Snow Conditions Update…
The first proper day of the season as it was sunny and cloudless.
A lot more open today in Courchevel and snow cannons were blasting all the way along Folyères down to La Tania ready for the weekend opening.
The Three Valleys access today was via Méribel but high winds stopped the Bruyeres second stage opening so there was no access to Val Thorens today (as Côte Brun was also not open).
The whole area is gradually opening up and a rough non-professional estimate is that 90% of pistes could be opened at the weekend. Looking like a “better than average” start to the season.
A rough estimate of snow depth on Moretta Blanche is 70cm.
Official snow depth on Saulire is a base of 125cm with 69cm of fresh snow over the weekend.
Runs down to La Tania officially closed and Folyères was much to hard with all the snow cannoned mounds of snow – we hear the read was good though!
